company will use information we gather about you from your visit to any of
our websites or through email. No information that would uniquely identify
you as an individual is ever collected through our websites unless you
freely choose to divulge such information. Our websites may employ
browser cookies to enable certain website functionality, but will not
utilize cookies for purposes of data collection or download any hidden code
onto your computer. (Some of our affiliate sponsors or advertisers may
employ cookies for purposes of tracking commissions due on sales or
referrals.) We take appropriate precautions to insure that our websites
and computers are free of viruses, worms and other malicious code. When
we initially install a hyperlink to another website, we manually test the
link to assure that it directs our website visitors to the designated
location. We periodically test links to ensure that they are still
functional and do not redirect visitors away from designated websites.
When You Visit Our Websites
When you visit our websites to read or download information, we may collect
and store information about your visit for statistical purposes. For
example, we may count the number of visitors to the different pages of our

not identify you personally. We automatically collect and store the

IMPORTANT: Except for
verifiable search engines and validators, WE DO NOT PERMIT ANY AUTOMATED
BROWSING AGENTS ON OUR WEBSITES. These include but are not limited to
anonymous agents (those which fail to supply a User Agent string or
deliberately mask their identity), email harvesters, blog comment spammers,
blog trackback spammers, offline browsers (downloaders, scrapers, web
strippers, browser extensions such as Bittorrent or Foxtorrent, and similar
software devices) and unknown bots (search engine spiders) or bots
masquerading as browsers.
We reserve the right to take any and all lawful actions to prevent automated
processes from accessing our web pages and directories. This is done
in the interest of keeping both visitor and proprietary information safe
from harm and to insure visitor privacy. If you have a genuine reason why
it is absolutely necessary for you to utilize automated browsing software
on our website, please contact us with complete details. If you run an
experimental or private search engine, you should provide a link within
the User Agent string directed to a web page which thoroughly describes
the nature and purpose of your bot.
Operating a browsing agent outside of the
prescribed parameters designated as appropriate for our websites could
result in your being banned permanently from our sites as well as from any
other sites that we manage. If you use a standard browser in a
conventional manner to surf the web, you are browsing appropriately.
If We Ask You to Complete a Survey
If we ask you to complete a survey, we may ask you for some personal
information (a range within which your age falls, for example). Any
information we request in a survey or feedback form will be used for
statistical purposes to help us improve website functionality, improve
quality of information presented on our websites, and select website
formats and topics based upon visitors’ aggregate interests. If
elsewhere on our websites we ask you to register to obtain a product or to
receive information, we promise that survey information and registration
information, if you choose to complete both, will remain separate from one
another so as not to identify you personally.
